One way that they are related is called the Pythagorean theorem. C squared = b squared + c squared. c being the hypotenuse, and a and b being the legs.

If it is a special right triangle, such as a 45-45-90 or 30-60-90, there are other ratios which describe their relationships.

A right-angled triangle can have equal sides, but does not have to. A right-angled triangle with two equal sides CANNOT be an equilateral triangle. A right-angled triangle cannot be an equilateral triangle.Divide a square along the diagonal, and you are left with two right-angled triangles with two sides of equal length.
